Last summer, my parents bought a home on the coast - we've (oh-so-originally) tagged it "the bayhouse." It is lovely, spacious, and full of potential. It also has a lot of..how shall I say...builder-grade touches. Picture mid-tone oak, "satin" nickel, and lots and lots of beige. Needless to say, I've been dreaming of ways to up the ante on the place since I heard the words "we closed."
In my mind, the perfect beach house would be a medley of this
probably some of this
Tough call on that - location would factor.
But back to the Bayhouse....
The chance for decorating enlightenment might have made me foam at the mouth, because my parents graciously allowed my sister and I free reign to decorate our designated bedrooms as we please.
Wanna see what mine looked like the day they closed?

The bed and nightstands were Craigs'd. The lamps are being repurposed in the living area (working on that). I saved the chest, but am in the process of giving it some TLC. Stay tuned.
Considering this is a room I get to enjoy - oh, twice a year or so, I can't justify a big budget, but I have managed to give it some life.
